A traditional milestone in the donorflex teams year has arrived in the shape of Hospice Lottery Associations annual conference. The end of summer wouldnt quite be the same without it.
The September 14-15 event at Solihulls voco St Johns Hotel is our fourteenth as lead sponsor and promises to be as insightful as the previous 13.
The team will have a particularly keen eye on two of the sessions that follow Nick Elstons intriguingly titled A ride across the Badlands opening plenary on the first day.
Alison Jerram will share the St Giles Hospice raffle story from a then, now, where next perspective, and Compton Cares Marie Von Wurzbach will offer her thoughts about maximising collaborative working with hospice departments.
The two organisations have both been donorflex users for 27 years, but the familiarity wont end there.
Christine Davies, Hospice Income Generation Networks chair, will ask whether the Code of Fundraising Practice is as hard to understand as Macbeth, or much ado about nothing.
donorflexs managing director, Brian Todd, will welcome back the second days sessions with a plenary address that considers the part that great data plays in converting opportunities to results across hospices income-generation operations.
"It doesnt seem a year since we enjoyed the first face-to-face conference after lockdown," he says. "It will be fascinating to see and hear how much lottery and raffle are contributing to meeting the challenges of the post-Covid era and the cost-of-living crisis."
